The scientific meeting Ancient Greek Theatre in the Digital Age aims to investigate the potentials and limits of the digital tool for the study of Greek Theatre. We especially invite papers that present experiences undertaken, project proposals and research perspectives relating to:
digital scholarly editions of ancient Greek theatrical texts, including fragmentary ones, and of the ancient scholia to theatrical plays, especially with reference to the debate about textual criticism and digital philology;
dynamic, collaborative and open access analyses of ancient Greek theatrical texts and new paradigms of textuality, authoriality and accessibility in the digital age;
digital archives of manuscripts, printed editions and modern performances of ancient Greek theatre; online lexica of ancient Greek theatre; databases of archeological and epigraphic material related to ancient Greek theatre; online repertories of props and costume designs in ancient Greek theatre; virtual reconstructions of ancient Greek stage settings and theatrical buildings;
online didactic strategies for studying ancient Greek theatre, starting from the experiences concretely gained by the scientific and academic community during the ongoing health emergency.
The aim of the Conference is to use digital tools – the only means, as of today, to ensure an exchange of ideas between scholars – to reflect on the digital challenge for the analysis of Greek theatrical texts, surviving and fragmentary, and of the theatrical phenomenon in its totality.
The meeting is organized by the University of Bari and will be held online. This session is part of the Widespread Conference on Ancient Drama promoted by the Centro Studi sul Teatro Classico of University of Turin.
